repeatedly characterized a terror attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi as a protest gone wrong. a statement from the white house maintains her comments were based on intelligence she had at the time. rice explained why it was she and not secretary clinton answering those tough questions on national tv. >> why was it you that sunday morning? of all the people in government, why the u.s. ambassador to the united nations answering questions on the attack. >> it wasn't that usual. i've done shows in the past. secretary clinton had been asked by most of the networks to go on. she had an incredibly gruelling week dealing with the protests around the middle east and north africa that enveloped our embassies. she had to deal with the loss of our four colleagues in benghazi. and console the whole state department, greet the families and the bodies. and she declined to do it. and i was asked by the white house if i would do it as the next senior american diplomat. we were talking about a range of issues that week. it wasn't just benghazi as you'll recall. it was a broad spectrum of forei
as secretary of state. many questions remain on the response to terror attacks in benghazi. some wonder whether or not we'll learn the truth. good morning, everybody. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom." we have our nice little "elf" here today. >> i'm alisyn camerota in for martha today. she wants to avoid a vote, length i, disruptive and costly confirmation process. critics say regardless of ryce's decision the investigation into benghazi will continue. here is lindsey graham on that. >> i hold her accountable and responsible for misleading the american people. failures on the intelligence community. there is fog of war component. i think she was chosen for a reason bill: still more on that statement now with buy on york, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner". good morning to you. so many questions remain. first off why did they make this move now? >> because time was running out and the administration, i think, hoped that opposition among republicans in the senate to rice would diminish but it didn't. the thing that really killed it, they understood, john m
attack in benghazi, libya. the topic playing in discussions during capitol hill during a series of meters and susan rice leading up to her possible nomination to be secretary of state. catherine herridge is reporting from washington. >> including the benghazi consulate a report in 2009 recommended physical barriers like this one. at a closed hearing before the senate committee, witnesses testified that those changes were never made in benghazi. >> it was really disconcerting and upsetting to see how easily the terrorists broke through the gates and basically just walked in. >> the committee's ranking republican also questions the striking similarities between the bombings in east africa which killed 12 americans. in 1998 susan rice was 33 years old. >> the ambassador to kenya sent repeated messages to the state department requesting a stronger facility because of the increased threat. those requests as in the case of benghazi were turned down by the state department. >> reporter: some analysts say it's beyond the benghazi controversy. as part of clinton administration, they turned down fr
comments five days after the attack on the outpost in benghazi. the attack killed the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens and three other americans. intelligence officials say they gave ambassador rice the talking points she used on the sunday shows and they took out the references to al qaeda. the "wall street journal," which our parent company owns, reports more than two dozen agencies helped edit those talking points. officials tell the journal the cia made the call to remove the al qaeda references. why? to protect intelligence sources. according to the reporting of the journal, the fbi agreed with that decision but some state department officials said it made the talking points too vegas. now fox news has learned the director of national intelligence plans to give a classified briefing on benghazi tomorrow for the entire house of representatives. for the rest of the story, catherine herridge with us from washington now. catherine? >> shepard, tomorrow on capitol hill, a second round of closed classified briefings for all the members of the house of representatives, nation's to
's no question there was politics at play here by republicans who were really, really angry about benghazi, and she illustrated that, but it was more than that. it was also personality driven, because democrats even think she is very smart and capable but maybe doesn't have the personality for the job. >> gloria, i heard you say earlier that you think ambassador rice underestimated the club. what did you mean by that? >> right. that was from a democrat very close to the white house. she said the club is really important on capitol hill. john kerry is the leader in that club, john mccain likes him an awful lot and would clearly go along with that nomination. also, when she traveled up there and she wanted to go up there to talk to these senators, there is a sense from the source that she kind of overestimated her ability to woo them over on the question of benghazi. that was a really big pre-existing condition for her, and dana just pointed out, she didn't win over susan collins, who was quite important to her. >> and david, i mean, what do you make of this? is this just a sign of how parti
the incredible pictures. it's all "happening now." jon: a scathing new report on the benghazi terror attacks that left four americans including our ambassador dead. good morning, i'm jon scott. jenna: good morning, everybody, i'm jenna lee. an independent panel authored this report that slammed the state deet and blaming management and leadership there for quote, systemic failures and gross security lapses. however the panel recommends at this time no disciplinary action. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live on capitol hill with more on this. catherine, in the last hour we have some brand new reaction to this report. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right, jenna. first of all the report concludes there was no protest prior to the attack. that al qaeda is not dead. it has metastasized. that its followers have a new home in eastern libya. and that the benghazi on 9/11 was a significant defeat for the united states. it killed 4:00 americans including our ambassador. it also shuttered our diplomatic security presence in eastern lib. >> as well as a siza
. jenna: breaking information in the benghazi terror investigation, as we await news from a bipartisan classified briefing on that deadly attack back on september 11th when terrorists killed four americans, including our ambassador to libya. we are staking out the hearing if case any lawmakers decide to talk. catherine herridge will bring us a live report a little later on in the show. >> reporter: i want to go live to the president who is speaking before a group of business leaders, let's listen in. >> it's good to be back at the business roundtable. jim, thanks for your leadership. originally my team had prepared some remarks, they always get nervous when -- when i'm out there on my own, you never know what i might say. but given the dialogue that we had the last time i thought it was useful for me to abbreviate my remarks, speak off the cuff at the top and spend most of our time just having a conversation. let me begin by saying that all of you in this room are not just business leaders, not just ceo's of your companies, but you're also economic leaders and thought leaders in this c
back to pre-benghazi levels. 52% approve, 40% disapprove. his potential pick for secretary of state, she is taking on water. u.n. ambassador susan rice's personal rating upside down. first time we've ever tested her. a third of the voters say they don't know who she is. that's amazing that only a third of voters doesn't know who she is. among those who do know her, only 20% view her positively, 20% negatively, for now benghazi has taken a back seat to syria, where the syria military is now firing scud missiles at rebel forces in the north, almost thumbing its nose a little bit at the world community here. jim joins me now. it's as if essentially they've seen the line the world is drawing when it comes to chemical weapons and feel they can do almost anything else. >> u.s. officials said this is a clear sign the assad regime in damascus is becoming ever more desperate. this is the first time in a two-year war that the syrian military has used these scud missiles against the rebels. they fired six to eight of them into the north, presumably at rebel strongholds. at least two of them, t
, for the very first time secretary of state hillary clinton will be giving public testimony about benghazi. welcome to "happening now," i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. secretary clinton finally sets a date she will appear on capitol hill, exactly one week from today. lawmakers want to know more about shifting explanations by the administration and security decisions before the attack which left four americans dead including our u.s. ambassador to libya. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live on capitol hill for us now, so where do we stand in this investigation now, catherine? >> reporter: well, thank you, jon, and good morning. today here on capitol hill we have two closed, classified briefings, there's one this afternoon and one before the house intelligence committee has just wrapped up, and we just heard from the ranking member, the senior democrat on that committee, who said the briefing broke down into two components. the other looked at the state department's internal report. >> now, there's another issue out there, and that's the state department. and that is r
the consulate was attacked in benghazi we talked about how do we strengthen benghazi to make sure it doesn't happen again. all i'm asking is to have a conversation. >> let's leave costas to the side. number one is the second amendment to the constitution. the minute the government -- >> it doesn't say anything about you can't regulate gun control. go back and read it. >> hold on. time, place and manner restrictions on constitutional rights. he's right about that. but what in jovan belcher's background that says he doesn't have that capability. >> let's have sensible background checks -- >> i think the problem -- >> we have -- larry, right now i bought a gun a couple of weeks ago. i had to sit down, fill out a form although i have a safe full of guns at home and they had to run that through an fbi background check. those background checks are already done right now. >> there's no federal regulations for private purchases. there are no federal regulations for private purchase. there's no gun show background checks. there's a lot of loopholes we have to close. >> there are in many states. >>
clear from as soon as the controversy over benghazi, the comments began that it wasn't going to happen? >> i don't think this is just about partisanship. and i don't think it is just good benghazi. that was an issue of course. but in this case, there are a number of senators on both sides to the aisle that believe the united states has tough work ahead in international relations. someone has to negotiate with the iranians to make sure we don't get into a conflict there and sbhn a toughness and authority of a jim baker and frankly, there was a sense about susan rice that even though she is very talented and i think she did a generous thing today by withdrawing, she really was loyal to her president by him doing that. but there was also a sense that she didn't have the weight. she didn't have the background that senator kerry does. and he is extremely schooled and knows the rough parts of the world. there was a sense in the senate that people there would just be more comfortable with him representing the united states. >> david, what do you think this says about president obama himself.
in benghazi. state department officials will testify later this week. in a moment we talk to john bolton about what is in that report, martha? martha: breaking news this morning. an american journalist released after five days in captivity in syria. we've got brand new details on that. >> the last five days were very difficult. we're very happy to be out. we're very happy to be back in turkey. we love being here. we love this country. we appreciate all the help. the last five days, some days we would rather forget ♪ [ male announcer ] the way it moves. the way it cleans. everything about the oral-b power brush is simply revolutionary. oral-b power brushes oscillate, rotate and even pulsate to gently loosen and break up that sticky plaque with more brush movements than manual brushes and even up to 50% more than leading sonic technology brushes for a superior clean. oral-b power brushes. go to oralb.com for the latest offers. bill: here we go, now. the first official review of the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya, said to be complete. this comes days before the hearings began on capitol hi
said on several sunday morning tv shows about benghazi, the attack in libya that ended up costing the lives of four americans. but by the time that whole thing played out, it was pretty clear that she was reading talking points that were put together by the intelligence community. she had very little, if nothing to do with embassy security itself. she happened to be on those shows themselves because secretary clinton had just come back from a trip and said she was too tired to go on them. there was more under way here though. part of it was a little bit of her style, which was very confrontational one and that probably didn't serve her all that well when she went up to capitol hill a few weeks ago and tried to talk this out between senator john mccain, lindsey graham, others who had opposed her. little bit of it was the white house i think after president obama came out very strongly in her support. she was afterall one of the first people to sign on to his foreign policy team when he was a pretyim probable candidate. after that, the white house did not come out in sort of a full-
attacks at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> and it's important to remember what susan said was based on the information that had been given to every senior official in our administration, and she made very clear in her appearances that the information was subject to change as more facts were gathered and analyzed by the intelligence community. and look, as is often the case, our understanding evolved over time. and we've done our best to keep the american people and the congress informed. that was her goal, that was her mission and she should not be criticized for doing exactly that. >> that, of course, comes in direct conflict with what general david petraeus, the director of the cia, told the committee in the senate where he said they knew immediately after the attack, the next day, that it was, in fact, an attack launched by al qaeda. now, speaking to reporters in ireland on one of her last trips as secretary of state, hillary laughed off questions about a potential presidential run in 2016, saying she's just too busy with her current job to think long term. >> i'm right now too f
to close down the cia annex in benghazi? >> reporter: it's worth contrasting the status of the consulate with that. while the consulate site has never been secured, fox news is told that the cia annex in benghazi was shuttered by september 12th less than 24 hours after the attack. all classified information was removed or pwurpbld. burned. the decision to close down the annex same at 5:15 local time when the annex took fire from two mortars. the process began the night before after the consulate was attacked in the evening hours. the initial stages of the agency's proscribed evacuation kicked in as a cautionary step. once it was clear they could not sustain their position that was wrapped up and they were able to get everything out, classified information, either moved or destroyed by about 7:00am local time. so the contrast is that within hours the cia was able to close down their operation, and that consulate has never been secured by any u.s. personnel, jon. jon: and it's almost three months later and still all of these questions. >> reporter: that's correct, uh-huh. jon: thank you, c
will be testifying before the house foreign affairs committee on benghazi. that likely will happen before the end of the president's current term. >>> snow may be slowing north korea preparation for another rocket launch. south korean report that the north mounted all three stages of the vehicle may not have been accurate. satellite images indicate that the north could still be ready by monday. for what it says is the launch of a satellite. the west says it's not a satellite at all. just cover for testing missile technology. still ahead, remembering the glory days of america's manned space program. up first, though, remembering a day that will live in infamy. we will meet a man who sur viveed pearl harbor twice -- who survived pearl harbor twice. initiated. neural speeds increasing to 4g lte. brain upgrading to a quad-core processor. predictive intelligence with google now complete. introducing droid dna by htc. it's not an upgrade to your phone. it's an upgrade to yourself. stop! stop! stop! come back here! humans -- we are beautifully imperfect creatures living in an imperfect world. that's why
to respond to security threats in benghazi before the attack that killed four americans. the senate homeland security committee cited a senior state department official who said that previous security-related incidents were triggered "flashing red indicators." but despite warnings no one moved to protect the consulate or shut it down. we are seeing one of the first public threats against u.s. diplomats since the attack. according to the u.s.-based cite intelligence group, militants in arabian peninsula have offered 160,000 worth of gold to anyone who kills this american ambassador. they are also offering $23,000 for killing a u.s. soldier. remember, intelligence analysts have called this branch of al qaeda the most dangerous terror group in the world. now we have former israeli special forces operator and a counterterrorism consultant and managing director at i.m.s. security and author of "brotherhood of warriors." good to see you, aaron. when you hear bounties are placed on an american ambassador as well as american soldiers, does that tell you this is upping the ante? >> it is being upped
the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. she'll appear before the house and senate foreign affairs committees. a report by a state department review board on the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans is expected to be released before clinton testifies. she testifies one week from today. >>> a lockdown has been lifted this morning on the campus of california state university at fullerton. that's near los angeles. the campus went on high alert yesterday after suspects in an armed robbery at a nearby store abandoned their getaway vehicle near the school. police say five suspects were involved. three were arrested. the campus took precautions while police searched for the other two suspects. >>> computer security tycoon john mcafee is back in the u.s. this morning. mcafee says guatemalan authorities refused his request for asylum and kicked him out of their country. they placed him on a flight to miami. right after his flight arrived in the u.s., mcafee thought he might be facing more legal trouble here at home. >> they said is john mcafee on the
that's been appointed to review what happened in benghazi, libya, on 9/11 of this year, he is on an advisory board at the state department and one at the cia. so clearly, this man has got important matters on his desk. how exposed could we be if the chinese have access to all of his writings? >> very exposed. and this is nothing new. if you take a look at a typical burglar and he wants to break into a yard and has this hardened lock on a fence that he cannot cut through, what is he going to do? he's going to cut the chain. we're not going to go after a facility that spends billions of our tax dollars on securing their networks. we're going to go after somebody who works outside, somebody who has access to internal resources. it's called a u-turn attack. what they do is they find that weak link such as a home computer or a personal computer belonging to a former admiral or cia agent, and they attack that. they get access to that, and then they use their vpn connection inbound to get access to the same resources he would have access to or she would have access to based on the
and the aftermath of the attacks on benghazi and libya that killed the ambassador there and several others. so she's come under fire because of the administration's response. we've seen many veteran senators very critical of her, including senators john mccain and lindsey graham. they will have much more on "the situation room" as this news is just coming out, what this means. let me get to the statement here, the statement from the white house. quote, i spoke to ambassador rice and accepted her decision to remove her name -- this is the president -- remove her name from consideration for secretary of state. it goes on. for two decades susan has proven to be an extraordinarily capable, patriotic, and passionate public servant. as my ambassador to the united nations, she plays a role in american's interest. she has secured international support in sanctions against korea and stood up for sudan and stood for the human rights of all people. it goes on to say that he's very grateful that she will continue to serve as ambassador to the united nations. it's been widely known that she has been the topic.
report found that security in the post benghazi was woefully inadequate leading up to the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed chris stevens. he's got a whole lot of international issues to deal with, but he's also going to be leading a department that, including its foreign staff, has 75,000 people. >> all right. elise labott, jessica yellin, wolf blitze thank you very much, all of you guys. we'll take a quick break and we'll be following this. arrhea,? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

in benghazi. take a listen. >> susan rice has done a great job as our u.n. ambassador. she has been a stalwart colleague in a lot of the tough decisions that we've had to make. and certainly with respect to defending our national interests and national security at the united nations. >> so clinton is also going to testify on benghazi next week. what are the politics of all of this for secretary clinton? and are there risks for her here? >> i don't think there are necessarily risks for her here as long as she stays out of the whole fray of susan rice and congressional republicans. there's an awful lot going on on that score, but i tnk hillary clinton may be able to keep herself above all that. by the way, we keep expecting the white house for this rice situation to be resolved. we fully expect president clinton to make -- excuse me, president obama to make his announcement about his national security team any day now. >> what do you hear with regards to that, david? are you hearing that susan race is going -- susan rice is going to get the nod or that the waters are shark infested and -- >> com
in benghazi libya. the u.s. ambassador and three others were killed. the report slammed the state department for what it called systemic failures leading up to the attack. four senior level state department officials took the hit. one resigned, the other three put on administrative leave. how does this whole thing affect her legacy especially if she decides to run for president in 2016? allen lichtman joins us. the board did not blame the secretary but made clear there were problems high up at the state department. pretty damning. what's the impact on secretary clinton? >> pretty damning. to paraphrase harry truman, when you lead an organization like this in government, you're riding the tiger. well, the tiger didn't quite devour her but it took quite a bite out of her. can she recover before 2016? absolutely yes. this is not chap quick dick where the blame for a death seemed to fall squarely on senator kennedy. and really he never could recover from that. here the blame is spread far and wide. the commission did not pinpoint hillary clinton, and of course, the blame also falls on members of
into 2013 is what unfolded in benghazi libya. where we lost an ambassador and three other americans. >> well, we still don't have all the answers. and despite the fact that this internal state department report i think there will be a lot more as we learn as congressional hearings ramp up and more people come forward with their own stories. i think that there is a lot more there, and we frankly need to get those answers. kelly: john fund we thank you for joining us, sharing insights on the top stories of what inch folded throughout the year of 2012. thank you. jamie: perhaps the story we'll start off with in 2013 other than the fiscal cliff is the growing tension in the middle east. things really heating up. a group of nations are accusing iran of stirring unnew trouble. we'll tell you what has them most worried. kelly: it's a sign of the holiday season across the country, the alsraeugs army salvation army. ringing bells for those who could use some help. we will tell you how the donation drive is doing. ♪ silver bells. silver bells. ♪ ♪ d it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey
. there's no question that benghazi continues to be litigated. even on the democratic side, there is some division on this. i've talked to democratic senators who have questioned whether she has the standing, the stature, to be secretary of state. so obviously there's some division about how people view susan rice. but here's the bottom line. she's very close to the president of the united states. she is a key voice in his national security team. that's what could ultimately win the day. john kerry has been campaigning hard for it. he's done everything this administration has asked in their first term. overseas, been quite engaged as chairman of the foreign relations committee. so he's certainly a very strong candidate. but at this point, even people close to the president suggest there's just a bit of a question mark about how much of a fight he wants and how much it will come down to getting somebody he believes in and he's close to into that job. >> congressman cleaver, your thoughts on susan rice as a potential nominee. >> well, i think susan rice is imminently qualified and capable o
